William Floyd High School senior Isabella Liu has been selected to receive the St. Joseph’s College Presidential Grant, a full tuition grant for all four years of college. Isabella is one of only 11 students in Suffolk County to be selected for the grant this year. She will major in psychology beginning in the fall of 2017.
Isabella will graduate among the top 10 percent in the class of 2017 and has been a member of the Key Club since her sophomore year. She currently serves in the position of editor. During her time in the Key Club, she has worked on various projects including “The Elimination Project” which is an effort to eliminate neonatal and maternal tetanus, as well as volunteering with the Children’s Literacy program at the Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library.
“What is amazing about Isabella is not only all that she has accomplished, but all that she will accomplish as a student at St. Joseph’s,” said Suzanne Crocetti, Isabella’s guidance counselor. “She is a student who makes us proud as educators and as a community. I cannot think of a more compassionate, intelligent or outgoing young woman who is more deserving of this grant.”
St. Joseph’s College Presidential Grant recipients are well-rounded and high-achieving students who participate in various extracurricular activities and community service initiatives. Congratulations, Isabella!
